Katsuni is tonkatsu (deep fried pork cutlet) lightly simmered in soy sauce and sweet mirin with onion, topped with half cooked egg.



Sukiyaki is a stew that consists of beef, noodles, and vegetables served hot pot style.

The interior of the restaurant has a modern feel and the bathroom is very clean (sorry, don’t have any pictures). The food is good, but the portions are small because it is tapas style. The only thing odd is that they play Spanish music in this otherwise very Japanese restaurant! Perhaps to emphasize the tapas-styleness? No se ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Tatsu Ramen

One of the unique things about this place is their ordering system: you order and pay when you first walk in using one of the three iPads they have set up! You then seat yourselves and somehow they know what your order is (we didn’t have to show the waitress our receipt/number). A con about this system is that to tip with card, the choices for the amount are preset ($2, $4, or $6). To tip using card, there is a separate iPad by the door on your way out. They also have vegan-friendly ramen and sell merchandise such as shirts.


Soul Ramen

This place has appeared in the press, like LA Weekly, but despite the rave reviews, this place was just okaayyy. (more…)



Top: Dungeness Crab Benedict
Bottom: Dungeness Crab Sandwich

Yup, we were both in a mood for some crab that day haha. This place is good, but not amazing nor worth the wait. We waited about 1.5 hrs and the majority of that time was outside in the hot sun 😦

Ready for some fancy schmancy scrambled eggs? Lo and behold.


These hearty scrambled eggs will definitely start your day off right! This recipe is vegetarian, but it’ll please your tastebuds whether you’re an herbivore or a carnivore (I promise!). (more…)



If you all haven’t noticed already, I like using eggs when I cook. Eggs make everything better! Okay maybe not everything, but I certainly like to have one with my spaghetti sometimes! (more…)

Be prepared for your hands to get a little messy as you eat depending on how runny your yolk is! I liked mine just the way it turned out in the picture hehe. (more…)
